Silence Speaks Volumes

The Wake-up Herald

And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof. Romans 13:11-14

Moral Depravity Behind Murder of Babies

Events of the past few months have exposed the grisly, hideous underbelly of the abortion mill in America. When faced with the harsh, gut-wrenching realities of the procedures, the “woman’s right to choose” transforms into nothing more than infanticide, at whatever stage it’s perpetrated.

Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell is now serving three consecutive life terms for convictions on three counts of first-degree murder of infants. He was also found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the overdose death of a patient.

Conditions inside Gosnell’s infanticide mill led Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams to call the clinic a “house of horrors.” The crime scene investigator said that “The smells were just unbearable. You could tell there was death everywhere.”

His former employees testified during the trial, painting a picture of gruesome violence against babies that could rival any horror flick. They testified how they aided Gosnell in severing the spinal cords and gouging the heads of not just seven infants (as he was charged), but literally “hundreds” of live babies. Steven Massof, an unlicensed medical school graduate, testified that “it would rain fetuses. Fetuses and blood all over the place.” Sherry West testified how one baby, born alive, was merely tossed into a glass dish like a piece of refuse, and the baby simply screamed until it died.

Crime scene investigator John Taggart testified that the employees would dispose of fetal remains in a garbage disposal. When examined, investigators found human infant bone fragments inside. Taggart testified that “They were shoving body parts down the garbage disposal, to the point where they plunged it one day and an arm popped out on Lancaster Avenue.”

As if to not be outdone, and proving that Gosnel is not as anomalous as we might otherwise believe, we learn of a Texas doctor who has been running his own house of horrors. Four former employees of Dr. Douglas Karpen have made a public record of the atrocities committed by Karpen at his three abortion clinics. In their taped testimonial, the employees revealed what they had personally witnessed from their boss. They described how he would deliver live babies during third-trimester abortions and kill them by snipping their spinal cord, or stabbing a surgical instrument into their heads or stomach. Revoltingly, he even killed them by “twisting their heads off of their necks with his bare hands.” Other times, he would “pull the baby out of the womb in pieces because of how big it was.”

The former employees claim that they observed these horrendous acts on a daily basis. They said that some days, there would be three or four babies born alive and subsequently killed by the doctor. As of this writing, charges have not been filed against the doctor, who continues to run his practices in the Houston area.

What seems clear from these “doctors’” practices is that they’re abortionists, and so it makes no difference to them whether a baby dies by their hands in the womb or out of it. If it’s legal to terminate an infant while still in the mother, why should it make any difference if the baby is either part way out of the birth canal or completely out of it?

Unwittingly, they validate the argument that there is no difference. Regardless of what statute says or what the Supreme Court may rule, if it’s murder to kill an infant out of the womb, it’s also murder to kill one inside the womb. What is it that happens mysteriously at birth that grants an infant rights and protection under the law that are denied it before birth? After all, is it not even more innocent, more vulnerable, and more in need of parental and societal protection before birth?

As grisly and unconscionable as these examples are, it’s crucial that we as a people awaken to the fact that our current laws and our currently “legitimate” abortion industry are immoral and pervert our assignation of value to human life.

We recoil in horror at the news of the Sandy Hook killing of 20 children. Why are we not equally horrified by the murder of over 1.2 million babies every year in this country? Why are those who denounce Adam Lanza’s weapon of choice in the murder of the Connecticut children always the first to defend the weapons of Gosnel and Karpen?

The fact that we allow such murder of innocents to occur on a daily basis in this country, without outrage and denunciation, speaks volumes to the moral depravity and bankruptcy of the nation. After all, one of our founding principles, one that we hold to be an inalienable right, is that of “life.” If we hold unborn innocent life with such low regard, life is not an inalienable right, but a relativistic morally compromised principle that is nothing more than a good idea in some instances.

And America’s pastors and Christians, with a few exceptions, remain silent and passive.
